In Gee Chun: Top facts about the 2022 Women’s PGA Championship winner

The Korean sensation claimed her first major since 2016 with a one-stroke victory at the Women’s PGA Championship at the remodelled Blue Course in Bethesda, Maryland. We look at some of the facts you may not know about Chun.




South Korea’s In Gee Chun clinched her third major golf title recovering from a spectacular collapse in the front nine to secure the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship crown on Sunday (26 June).




With the win, she secured her first major title in six years, adding to the 2015 U.S. Women’s Open and the 2016 Evian Championship titles.

The 27-year-old Chun won by a stroke over Lexi Thompson and Minjee Lee in a climactic finish to end on five under, firing a three-over-par 75 at Congressional Country Club.

Her victory could easily have ended in bitter disappointment after she squandered a three-stroke advantage in the final round. Instead of completely unravelling as Thompson edged ahead, Chun rebounded to claim a one-stroke lead on the 17th before safely navigating to victory.
